A good basic sailing book is "Start Sailing Right!"

kind regards,
For some reason missed this post until recently.

Upon discovery, I picked and read your recommended book. Good instruction! Thanks for the heads-up!

Thank you all for the advice and the encouragement! We're loving the Catalina, and learning a good bit every time we go out. Looking forward to a long sailing season this spring, summer, and fall!
Fair Winds!
